Honeywell 5814 vs 5811
If you're down to considering the Honeywell 5814 vs the Honeywell 5811, you've already narrowed your wireless door and window sensor search to the two smallest offerings by Honeywell.
The Honeywell 5814 comes in as the smallest and is labeled their "Ultra Small" for a reason. The 5814 measures only 1 1/2" x 1 3/16" by 5/8".
The Honeywell 5811, meanwhile, is billed as their "Thin" sensor for a reason. It's nearly twice as long at 2 1/8", but is also half as thick at only 5/16". Both sensors measure in at 1 3/16" inches wide.
Both feature a transmitter that operates at 345 MHz, but the newer 5811 will give you a longer ranger at 200 feet versus the 5814, which can only be up to 100 feet away from your wireless security system or wireless receiver.
The transmitters also have different maximum gaps from their magnets before being tripped. The 5811 has a 0.75" gap and the 5814 can only be up to 0.5" before going off.
